Product Description
You can purchase all of my U.S. Government resources which includes power points, guided notes (with questions), homework, quizzes, unit tests, and group projects here: U.S. Government Resources

A quick word about my teaching style so that you know what you are getting into. I have worked at several schools in the past where I did not have the ability to check out books to students because of short supply. Because of this, I created materials in which I wouldn't need my students to have a textbook to be prepared for any tests or quizzes that they received. The power points that I created are quite extensive and include guided notes and video that go along with them. The students do not write down every word from the presentation and can focus on listening and learning the material from the lecture. Additional items that I have posted can be used for notebook check assignments which I usually have whenever I get to the end of a unit.

I created this bundle for an U.S. Government regular or honors class. This bundle includes the following resources:

- A 104 slide (274 mb) power point that covers how the United States won it's independence and the writing of the Constitution. I have included pictures and video to help you illustrate the themes that the notes go over.

- 3 pages of guided notes that go along with the presentation. I have included questions at the bottom of each page of notes which I have my students complete for notebook check assignments. The notes break down as follows:

Day 1 - Winning Independence
- This goes over the colonists grievances against the British Empire (which will be important for future amendments), creating the Continental Army, and declaring and winning independence.

Day 2 - The Constitutional Convention
- The Articles of Confederation, Shay's Rebellion, Virginia Plan, NJ Plan, and Great Compromise.

Day 3 - Ratification of the Constitution
- The Federalist Papers and the process of getting all 13 states on board with this new system of government.

- Warm-ups that can be given at the start of class.

- Origins of American Government questions - These should line up with your textbook so that you can give them as an in class or homework assignment at the start of the unit.

- Declaration of Independence Reading and questions

- Origin of American Government Quiz (key included). The quiz consists of 5 multiple-choice, 5 fill-in-the-blank, five true/false, and 1 essay question.

That's everything! Thank you very much for considering this product. Cheers!
